The Gold Coast Titans can be pretty pleased with their work this season as they are set for a finish in the middle of the ladder.

They have found a bit of form as well, having strung together a four match winning streak.

For their final game of the campaign, they line up against the Newcastle Knights who have seen their shot at a top-four finish come to end.

But they will be heading to the finals so will be looking to head there on a high by collecting a match win.

Gold Coast Titans Preview – Can Titans make it five in a row?

It has been a great swing of form by the Gold Coast Titans who on a season-best four-match winning streak.

A thumping 42-24 win over the Manly Sea Eagles last weekend at Lottoland saw the Titans move on to a W8 L11 record for the campaign.

It’s been a great response because over the course of the first half of the season, they looked as if they were going to be a wooden spoon candidate.

Of the current top-eleven in the standings, the Titans are the lowest scoring team.

They are averaging 16 points per game through this campaign which is well below the 21-point average of the Knights, who they meet on Friday.

But the interesting thing is that the Titans have averaged 26 points per game over their last three victories.

Our betting prediction:
Knights 1-12 Winning Margin

(odds taken 0112 GMT, Wednesday 23rd September)


The Titans are worse off in the average points conceded area as well, having averaged 24 points per game against to the 17 per game average by Newcastle.

But again, the current form is there for them, but Gold Coast are the 6/4 underdogss in the match outright for this one* (odds taken 0112 GMT, Wednesday 23rd September).

This is the only meeting between the two sides during this shortened season, the Titans losing the last meeting in August last year by a 34-point margin.

There has been a big trend in head to head meetings between Gold Coast and Newcastle. Each of the last six meetings have been won by the home team on the day.

Given their current form a Gold Coast Titans +4 handicap is at 11/10 and something to consider for NRL betting* (odds taken 0112 GMT, Wednesday 23rd September).


Newcastle Knights Preview – Can the Knights end the regular season with a win?

Last weekend the Knights ran rampant over the Dragons, posting a 42-18 victory which was their fifth win in their last seven league fixtures.

Their slim chance of landing a top-four place for betting positioning in the finals bracket, was shut in a heavy loss against the Roosters in their penultimate game.

But they still have a big goal to play for and that will be a home tie in the first round of knockout action in the finals bracket.

They will achieve that with a win, so they have to turn up with the bit between their teeth.

But overall they have been steady campaigners have the Newcastle Knights who are the 4/7 odds-on favourites to win this game* (odds taken 0112 GMT, Wednesday 23rd September).

From their nine previous visits to the Cbus Super Stadium, the Knights have won four of those, and as mentioned, the recent head to head trend is for home wins.

Newcastle Knights have only scored a total of 18 points in their last two away games, both defeats against the New Zealand Warriors and the Sydney Roosters.

They are currently sitting on an overall record for this season of W11 D1 L7 and their away form reads W4 L4.

Newcastle are the favourites for this match and their average winning margin for the season has been a healthy 16.8 points.

But away from home against the in-form Titans that’s a big reach for this game and a Newcastle Knights -4 handicap is a 10/11* (odds taken 0112 GMT, Wednesday 23rd September).
